The House of Representatives yesterday resolved to investigate the alleged killings of some citizens by officers of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) in some communities of Sokoto State.

Adopting a motion by Rep Abdullahi Balarabe Salame (APC, Sokoto), the House urged Customs to immediately stop the incessant killings of citizens in communities such as Gada; Wurno; Tangaza; Gwadabawa; Kware; Wammakp; Binji and Sokoto. The House mandated its committee on Customs to conduct a holistic investigation on the matter and report back within two weeks.

It also urged the government to compensate all the victims or their families.

The House said that all the unnecessary road blocks mounted in the areas by all security agencies, which “were used as apparatus of exploitations, extortions and harassment of innocent Nigerians in the areas” should be dismantled. Leading debate on the motion, Rep Salame said on February 28, one of his constituents named Shuaibu Lawal was shot dead by a Customs officer after being stopped at an army check point in Gidan Fulani, near Gwadabawa town.
